The Elusive Night Ravens of Golden Gate Park – Spot One and You’ll Have Good Luck the Next Day

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

You can spot Nycticorax nycticorax (literally “night raven,” but we call them Black Crowned Night Herons there days) in Golden Gate Park if you pay attention.

They hide out in the bushes until dusk and then they start hunting, mostly for fish.

Spot one of them and you’ll have good luck until dusk the next day.

Brace Yourselves! Queen Meg to Visit Goldman Sachs at the BofA Building on Election Day

Monday, June 7th, 2010

(I’ll tell you, I’ve yet to see one of the many commercials for Meg Whitman for Governor – I guess they don’t have political ads sponsoring Glee, or I’m able to scroll right through them on my VHS, a kind of analog DVR that was popular before you were born. But I’ve seen a few vids against her on the YouTube and, frankly, I didn’t like the claymation one as I thought it was a bit cruel. However, this Queen Meg parody is looking pretty good, so that’s nice. And I’ll tell you, you know who doesn’t like this kind of mockery about queens and royalty and couldyousaysenatorinsteadofma’am? Other Female Electeds of every political stripe, that’s who. They don’t truck with this crap. They consider this kind of thing anti-female, theywouldneversaythataboutamanwouldthey. But you won’t ever hear those beefs, so I thought I’d tell you. Moving on…)

OMG! Queen Meg is coming to visit Goldman Suchs  in the Financh nabe at Noon on primary Election Day,* June 8th, 2010.

“California’s future monarch, Queen Meg, is ‘rich enough to  rule,’ and will be making her case with a royal bus tour of  Her Golden State this June 1 through 8. This satire is inspired by the efforts of Meg Whitman  to undermine democracy with her bottomless campaign  treasury. That’s why Queen Meg says, ‘We can’t afford our democracy, so why not try a monarchy.’”
 
Look for this dog and pony show at the corner of California and Kearny right next to the Banker’s Heart.

Use your intuitive play/ ’cause maybe we have more play time than money/

Forget About the Chrysler Bankruptcy, Get Your Imperial Out and Drive, Drive, Drive

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I’m thinking this is a 1965 (Chrysler) Imperial Crown - check it out as it makes an appearance on the 101 freeway. Now you’d probably prefer to drive a 1960 model or even a Chrysler 300 letter series, but this white whale will do in a pinch.

Crank up the oldies on the AM radio and change the station whenever they start talking about having to bail out Detroit. No matter, this aging rig will certainly get you more friends than Sinatra.
